    This blend has really grown on me. In the tin, it is a much lighter color than I expected given the description. It has nice dark fruit and natural tobacco tin note. It packs and lights easily, smokes effortlessly. It has a nice dark, earthy-sweet flavor that’s not too strong. In fact, the blend, to me, is rather smooth and "gentle” given the amount of flavor the I get from it. The Perique is definitely a background player; the dark-fired Kentucky and Virginias are the star, coming through on every puff. I don’t think it’s a very complex blend that evolves throughout the bowl; it’s consistent from start to finish, which I rather like. It smokes dry and to a nice grey ash. Being a shag cut it can burn a bit fast or hot if you push it but even then it doesn’t get harsh or bite. I’ve been enjoying it in small to medium-sized bowls.
